Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. It seems as if Dr. Desai is offline, would you like for me to answer your question? Also do you have a picture of the area which you can attach here?
Thank you for the response,
Now if you are unable to move your eyebrow upward AT ALL and there are no furrows caused in your forehead when you try to look upwards then it is likely that you may have damaged a branch of your facial nerve. It is the facial nerve or the 7th Cranial nerve which controls the movement of the eyebrow and also causes furrows on your forehead when you try to look upwards. If this is persisting even after 5 days of trauma then it is a possibility which should be ruled out with a clinical examination. If this is present then you can be treated with electrical physiotherapy to treat the nerve as well as possibly steroids as well.
I can still see some of the swelling below the eybrow so it is possible that teh muscle is swollen in the area and over the next few days as the swelling goes down even further then your movements may return. Infact even if it is mild trauma to the nerve then the movements can return on their own as well.
My advice is to wait for another two days and if that does NOT help and the symptoms persist then contact your doctor and have him do another clinical examination.
Do you have any more questions?
